I just saw the Silver Fett on the main page and it looks awesome. What would be the best site to buy one of these.

Just wait until the end of August and get it off of Paizo's site. Given you may have to join the fan club to do so, but I'd say the $28.95 is well worth it. Thats what I am doing anyway.

I did mean the Fan Club membership, for $28.95, which will get your a Silver Boba Fett if you act fast when they become available in late August.

That's the cost for the fan club membership though, yes Cory?  Cost for Fett will be additional I believe is what Vic indicated?  Still, unless you're at a convention where you can get them, far and away the cheapest deal on this item, plus all the regular perks of the fan club.  Good deal methinks.

Thats what I finally decided. Whipped out the plastic and charged $28.95 to join the F.C. Now I feel "official". It gets ya 8 issues of the Insider, membership card, Bantha Tracks, postcards, etc. Not to mention, first dibs on Silver Fett when he goes on sale through the F.C, which is additional, yes.

Still, it's better to subscribe to the F.C. than try and get someone to get it from a convention, or worse yet, pay eBay prices.

eBay prices are through the roof. Anywhere from $40 to the outrageous cost of the Pre-Order of $300. The going rate on eBay right now is around $55.
I seen one on there for $48. sitting there for a couple of days & some bidder that saw one just posted for $65. Bin'd it. He didn't even check the cheaper ones.   ???
Madness I tell you, madness.   ::)

Has anyone got the Fett from a convention yet?  

I sure hope I get one.  ;)

I haven't gone to a convention yet, but I do plan on going to the one in Chicago in late August.  I am going to get two of the Silver Fetts, but they're both sticking with me (sorry everyone!).  I'm keeping one carded and one loose.

I can't believe the prices on eBay though... outrageous!   :o

Those are some great Silver Fett pictures up in JD's Origins coverage right here!  Nice job Boba Binks!  Looks to be another cool silver figure, but since none of the conventions are anywhere nearby me, looks like I'll have to wait for the Fan Club to issue them online.  Hopefully that goes smoothly for all involved.  Sounds like the new ownership is on top of things, so I expect it should be a pleasant purchasing experience.

So I guess there hasn't been much follow up word on the Silver Clonetrooper as well lately.  Just that it's apparently going to be offered very similar to the prior Silver R2 later on in the year, I guess.  If anyone's got more details than that, give a shout!

That's ridiculous!  Just to think that if you spend $20 on Star Wars Hasbro products at TRU, you'll get one of these for free.  Who knows when they're going to do that, but it's still going to be free.

I still don't get this.  Why a clone trooper and not a stormtrooper?  It just doesn't make any sense.  Yes, yes, in the grand scheme this is the precursor to the stormie, but I thought the point was the celebration of the movies, not the character.  

I know I'll end up with one (or more) of these, but still, I would be so much happier if it was a stormtrooper. :-\

It's all about the 25th anniversary of Star Wars, so a Stormtrooper woudl have made much more sense.  I, too, don't understand why a Clone Trooper was done, but I don't work for Hasbro either.
